This is a thick, rich bbq sauce that I have used for years. It originally was published in a monthly publication in the early 1980s. These little books were called Great Recipes of the World. They seemed to go out of business not long after they first appeared here in Winnipeg. It is fairly easy to upgrade most recipes to a more healthy version by reducing salt and oil. I don't like store bought bbq sauce as they seem to have too much vinegar and salt. I just love this on meat or just spoon over rice.
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 bay leaf, crumbled
- 2 cups ketchup
- 6 ounces Coca-Cola
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons spicy mustard
- 2 teaspoons vinegar, any type
- salt and pepper
- Melt butter in a saucepan at med-low heat.
- Saute onion and garlic until soft, not brown.
- Add remaining ingredients.
- Simmer 1 hour until it is reduced to 1 1/2 cups, stirring occasionally.
Love your BBQ sauce, & although I originally made it just to have around for whatever, we did try it out on a couple of chicken breasts ~ Very, very nice, & definitely worth having around! Many thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
